Sputcontributing

I've always wanted to be a part of this site on an official level, and my new title of Contributor is a realization of that idea. It makes me really happy, because I love Sputnik and everything that the website (as well as the community itself) is capable of. I will be all politician-like, and tell you guys that if you have any suggestions in terms of reviewing, anything like that, just let me know and I'll do anything I can to improve the site (as much as a Contributing Reviewer can, of course). :] Here's a list of awesome people from this site that deserve a shout-out.
1Grizzly Bear
Veckatimest


Livingisland - Dave's a lesser known user here but he's a great friend of
mine who I introduced to this site. He's a fantastic guy, he lives in Rhode
Island and he's witty as hell. Props to you, buddy. :]
2Killer Mike
R.A.P. Music


Recspecs - What a chill guy. You posted a concert on my Facebook wall, I
believe, and because I'm a terrible person I haven't checked it out quite
yet. But I will in a minute, and I hope it means I can meet you soon! Luke
and I live a couple of hours apart, and we've been become well-accustomed
to the very different aspects of living in Georgia.
3Trioscapes
Separate Realities


PaperbackWriter - Hernan's an amazing dude overall. First off, his taste is
stellar, not to mention that he actively goes out of his way to assist
absolutely ANYBODY, with pretty much ANYTHING, on this site. If anybody's
going to get a ghost promotion over the next few months, it'll be this guy.
It's easy to be an asshole on the Internet, but Paperback is always so
humble and professional, and it's honestly inspired me very much.
4Suis la Lune
Riala


Xenophanes - This guy's been so helpful overall, and he deserves to be a
staffer in every regard. Eli's helped me with a ton of stuff regarding this
site, and from bro-times at Muzik Dizcovery to dude-times speculating
who'd get the promotion, the guy's always been really interesting to talk
to, and helpful beyond belief. Props to a great staffer.
5Bansheebeat
Wutai


TheReverend724 - I hope I got that number in your username right, man.
Dylan's got a wicked taste in music, and while we don't agree terribly often
it's always really interesting to know what he thinks about things. He's also
got a keen eye for anime, and that's perfect for a guy like me that's looking
to get started in that field.
6Of Montreal
Paralytic Stalks


Klap4Music - Rudy's an incredibly laid-back staffer on Sputnik, and I noticed
him when he made an active effort to read my reviews. It's nice to see a
staffer that doesn't throw his opinions at everyone - he's a humble guy that
deserves his role on this site.
7Locksley
Be In Love


Jom - I've requested so many features over the last year that I fear
decapitation. However, Jom's always handled it well and has even helped
me out a ton if I've had any specific questions. Swell dude.
8Linkin Park
Living Things


Irving - I haven't even talked to Irving too much, but sometimes you just
know that a person's worth getting to know. Another insanely nice guy,
hilarious as hell, and a lovely writer.
9MeWithoutYou
Ten Stories


Gyromania - Matt French is an awesome dude. He writes like no other, and
is incredibly committed to making a difference in the music review
community. We've worked together on various music websites, and all of
my experiences with him have been great. Congrats, fellow Contributor. :]
10Gold Panda
Companion


SilentPotato - dude, you're 1337 as hell, and I'm excited for the 2012 recs.
And you fool around a lot on Sputnik but when it comes down to it you'v
always been really friendly and an interesting guy overall.
11Givers
In Light


DaveyBoy - Sowing described Davey as the college professor that hangs
out with his students. After I laughed for an hour, I laughed for another
regarding how true it is.
12Regina Spektor
What We Saw From the Cheap Seats


SowingSeason - You're a delightfully helpful staffer, and all of the work that
you put into this site is much appreciated. Excited to work with you in the
future, friend. :]
13Sithu Aye
Isles


Clerquie - This guy has really interesting taste, and also is really open-
minded about music he doesn't specialize in. I'd like to get to know him
better for sure.
14Bersarin Quartett
II


StrangerOfSorts - Another shame to the promotion cycle is that Jonny didn't
get the bump. He's a fantastic writer, and has really exciting taste in
electronic music that brings something very new and fresh to Sputnik. Keep
an eye on this guy!
15Between the Buried and me
The Great Misdirect


Tyraelxy - Props to Tyrael for loving Between the Buried and Me as much as
he does, and just not giving a shit. Someday I hope to be as bold as you,
friend.
16The Contortionist
Intrinsic


ILJAJLM - What a swell guy. He has great taste in progressive from what I
can remember, and he's also really friendly. Also, I'm surprised by how
great his Contortionist review was - not sure if I need to write one
anymore.
17Ennui
Formation of Tides


LifeAsAChipmunk - Chipmunk has beautiful taste, discovers a ton of
underground releases and is a helpful darling, and is just chill overall.
18Laura Stevenson and the Cans
Sit Resist


Aids - This guy has the most Sputnik taste in music ever, but that's ok
because he's a hell of a cool guy. Hilarious too, and worth getting to know.
19Bomb the Music Industry!
Scrambles


Ifightffrdmns - maybe messed up that username, idk. But I asked Eric for
advice on my reviews, and he went out of his way to read like three of
them and give me constructive criticism.
20Arcade Fire
The Suburbs


YetAnotherBrick - dude, you need to review way more and just hang
around here more. You don't review a ton, but the ones that you do write
blow my mind.
